As we are beginning to see the start of El Nino and the rains that are coming with it, it's very important that we are prepared for what these rains could and most likely will bring.
What you will find in this post is a list of resources for you to print out and keep handy or pin the post so that you have something to refer to. You can pin the post by following our Pinterest Board or the pinned link here
Please remember these 3 helpful tips:
When you see a street that is covered in water and are unsure of how deep it is, Turn around, don't drown!
Turn your headlights on when you are driving in the rain. Help other drivers see you.
Slow down!! You are never in that big of a hurry.
Don't forget it is better to be prepared and clean up a little than to think you'll be fine and nothing is going to happen and then have to do major damage repairs later.
